*Consultation with Special Education personnel may result in course programming adaptations/modifications.

EBUS has developed courses designed to meet Ministry outcomes.  As a general rule, these courses will be offered by our regular education teachers while Special Education personnel at EBUS play a case management role:  coordinating IEP development, collecting feedback on student progress, and approving spending.

The Special Education case manager will provide IEP goal progress reports.

Parents play a key role in supporting the development and implementation of their child’s learning program, including:

  • Working with EBUS staff and service providers to develop a learning plan appropriate to each learner
  • Actively delivering and/or monitoring day-to-day learning, including submitting work samples for all subjects
  • Access EBUS website/Moodle and all posted information
  • Maintaining regular communication (via e-mail, telephone, etc) with EBUS staff
  • Assessing goal progress and providing feedback for each reporting period

Paying Service Providers    

The Ministry of Education does not allow EBUS to reimburse parents/students directly.  This includes our inability to reimburse for anything a family might purchase.  Service Providers must invoice EBUS Academy directly.
